Piraeus by Architecture 112 clock tower
The company based in Athens Architecture 112 (Stavros Martinos and Aris ntalas) aims to reconfigure the facade of a tower with a sundial in urban areas in Piraeus. Built on the site of a building with a clock of the 19th century, the current structure is abandoned, the new design will render the memory of demolished historic site.
The new tower is divided into four convex volumes, each surface of the volume is designed to be a triangular face, giving the Tower a constantly changing appearance and identity.
Architecture 112 proposed a realization original, actually based on the exploitation of the time through a clock. Harsh geometric forms piled up to form the whole of the building. Each volume encompasses 4 floors, which in the end gives a building high enough for a city such as Piraeus.
